Hey ladies, I hope everyone had a successful work week, or whatever you do with your time week. I know I did. I walked around and stuff. I went to a museum—it was thought-provoking. Anyway, the spring season is in full effect and there are some great new bright tracks this week from some old favorites as well as a couple newcomers. Enjoy.
Evvol – “Four Steps From Home”
Berlin’s Evvol premiered their latest video for “Four Steps From Home” on The Fader earlier this week. The track is steeped in sultry late night vibes and the video follows the relationship of a pretty sensuous couple of gals.
Holychild – “Money All Around”
LA’s self proclaimed brat pop duo of Liz Nistico and Louie Diller featured on last week’s playlist with their contribution to Keljet’s killer track “What’s Your Sign.” They’re back this week with their first single off their hotly anticipated first studio LP, The Shape of Brat Pop To Come, out June 2nd.
Blur – “My Terracotta Heart”
Remember Blur? I sure hope so, but if you don’t this indie Britpop number formed in the late ‘80’s is back with their first album in over a decade. Scoot over to Pitchfork to stream the album now before it’s formal release on the 28th.
MOTHXR – “Centerfold”
Penn Badgely’s MOTHXR coming through with the perfect house party track in time for the weekend. The track is tapped to be part of the Kitsuné America 4 Compilation LP, who always seem to be putting out some great new music.
Django Django – “Beginning to Fade”
Django Django thoughtfully dropped this trippy track and video just in time for 4/20 this past week, if things of that nature might be up your alley. If not, it’s still a pretty and willowy psychedelic number from the British rockers.
Creepoid – “Dried Out”
Good solid rock from this Philadelphia based outfit. It’s got just the right amount of angst to pump you up against whatever might be ailing you.
Lianne La Havas – “Unstoppable”
Been looping this one. Really great soul number from killer vocalist and guitarist Lianne La Havas. Look for more to come shortly.
Wet – “Deadwater”
Wet are the sort of band dreams must be made of for people who compile playlists for “hip” spaces. Their smooth sound seems to fit virtually every mold. Thankfully their debut LP is right around the corner, so settle into hearing Kelly Zutrau’s alluring vocals pouring out of speaker’s from coffee shop to tattoo parlor the nation over the next few months.
Thee Oh Sees – “The Ceiling”
Something decidedly different coming from the Bay Area’s garage rock quartet, “The Ceiling” is their slightly psyched out addition to the 50 Bands And A Cat For Indiana Equality compilation.
Blonde Elvis – “Oh Mary”
Just when you thought the week was going to come to a close without glam rock then boom Blonde Elvis bursts onto the scene with this little number. It’s a little Bowie meets doo-wop and it’s just perfect for some Friday fun time.
